We stayed at this hotel as part of a school group. Having traveled to Costa Rica several times, this really was one of the best places we stayed. It was not the fanciest, but it was clean, safe and most importantly, hospitable. The manager was very concerned about making sure we had a great stay and treated us like guests in her home. She was always available to help with anything we needed. It is situated in an rural area with wonderful landscaping/jungle-like area to walk around in the back. The food was wonderful homemade and yes, it was open air eating, as is typical in Costa Rica. There were no more bugs than I see in the States in the summer, only different kinds, which was neat for my students to see. I was in 6 or more rooms and didn't see one that was unclean or not secure. Will definitely be going back!
